Caimans take refuge from wildfires on an island in the middle of one of the few lagoons alongside the Transpantaneira road in the Pantanal of Mato-Grosso that has not dried out.<br />
Since the beginning of 2020, the Pantanal has been facing the largest destruction by burning in its history. From January to September, fires burned 3,977,000 hectares of the Pantanal, which corresponds to 26.5% of the entire biome, killing a vast amount of the region's wildlife.
